Mission Statement

Families in His Presence aims to foster a greater devotion and love of Jesus in the Eucharist among families and young people. Using prayers, hymns and meditations that inspire and encourage them to revere and love Jesus more fully, Families in His Presence presents Eucharistic Family Holy Hours dedicated to bringing entire families into His Real Presence. The fruits of spending time in adoration of our Living Lord include greater understanding of the Real Presence of Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, appreciation of the mysteries of God’s grace and salvation, and a fervor to be faithful to God’s call to holiness for each individual. Through the graces that bring about this deepening of faith, we hope to see love, forgiveness and joy grow in our families.

On January 21, 2008, Most Rev. Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of Milwaukee approved Families in His Presence as the Family Adoration Program of the Rosary Evangelization Apostolate for which he serves as the Episcopal Advisor.

Families in His Presence places this adoration initiative under the patronage of Blesseds Jacinta and Francisco Marto of Fatima. Inspired by their faith and love of the Holy Eucharist, we pray for their intercession.

Blessed Jacinta, pray for us.

Blessed Francisco, pray for us.
